New real-time data platform scales to meet 30% growth in demand for IPL

Aerospike Inc. today announced its partnership with Dream11, the world’s largest fantasy sports platform, to scale and meet requirements to handle millions of online users during the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Powered by the Aerospike Real-time Data Platform, and deployed as a fully cloud managed service on AWS, Dream11 has improved performance, scale, availability and elasticity – while reducing the total cost of its online fantasy sports service.

Aerospike’s Real-time Data Platform powers real-time, hyperscale and data-hungry applications with predictable performance. By eliminating many of the tradeoffs of traditional database approaches, Aerospike makes it possible for companies to quickly ingest and process vast amounts of data from multiple sources at massive scale—with up to 80% less infrastructure typically required.

Aveekshith Bushan, Regional Director and General Manager – APAC, Aerospike, said, “With more people online than ever, the pandemic accelerated the need for truly scalable real-time data platforms that deliver the best customer experience possible. We are excited to partner with Dream11 for the  2021 edition of the IPL and beyond, where our Cloud Managed Services Platform powers many large-scale, mission-critical Dream11 applications. ”

The IPL has been one of the world’s biggest annual sporting events since 2007 and during the League, online fantasy sports platforms often witness high volumes of fan engagement.  With half of the matches of the IPL 2021 postponed due to the pandemic, the appetite to play fantasy sports is expected to increase for the second half of the season. Aerospike helps power some of the most crucial features of the Dream11 platform at a gigantic scale, with high trust for millions of concurrent users. From displaying the home page with a plethora of matches to presenting personalised contests to be joined, Aerospike does it seamlessly with extremely high performance and availability. Very importantly, it also enables users to create and edit their own fantasy teams on the Dream11 Team Service at scale.

Abhishek Ravi, Chief Information Officer, Dream11 and Dream Sports said, “Thanks to Aerospike’s expertise and our data-driven team, Dream11 along with other group companies of Dream Sports like FanCode and DreamPay, has become synonymous with sports fan engagement in India. As the sports industry faced disruption due to COVID, in the first phase of the IPL 2021, Dream11 had witnessed a significant rise in user engagement before the tournament’s suspension due to the pandemic. Now with the IPL resuming soon and with Aerospike’s continued support in Cloud Managed Service, we hope to reach many more milestones and surpass the 5.5 million concurrencies, 80 million requests per minute, and 20,000 team update benchmarks that we had achieved in the IPL’s 2020 edition.”

Furthermore, Aerospike and Dream11 are participating in “The World Developers Online Summit, 2021, India,” a program developed by people in the industry with a target of 100+ delegates. Aveekshith Bushan, Regional Director and General Manager – APAC, Aerospike and Hammond Pereira, Director of Engineering, Dream11 are the keynote speakers in this event and they speak about how Dream11, with Aerospike, has built a Fantasy Sports Team Service to handle futuristic IPL scale.

Event dates: 16th – 17th September

Asia Gaming Brief, the organizer of regional gaming conference the ASEAN Gaming Summit, has confirmed the much-awaited return of its yearly conference on 21-23 March, 2022, at the Shangri-La at the Fort in Manila.

The conference, known for gathering influential gaming executives from the Philippines and across Asia, has been on a two-year hiatus as Covid-19 made it impossible to safely host a physical event.

However over the last few months, Manila in particular, has been making enormous strides to reopen its economy. Just this week, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos Jr. announced that Manila’s population is expected to reach 92 percent vaccination status by December. This has given Asia Gaming Brief confidence about the viability of its planned March dates in 2022.

“We’re excited to be able to bring back the ASEAN Gaming Summit next year, and we are encouraged by the rapid vaccination rate in the Philippines, particularly Metro Manila,” said Felix Ng, conference director at Asia Gaming Brief.

“We’re now gearing up to bring the industry its first conference in Manila post-pandemic, aimed at reigniting growth in one of Asia’s biggest gaming jurisdictions. We look forward to welcoming anyone looking to reconnect with the gaming industry in Asia once again.”

The three-day event is expected to bring around 300 gaming executives from Asia’s land-based and online gaming industry, including the region’s regulators and government officials.

“Our 2022 event will be bringing back our world-class conference, with a packed agenda made up of some of the industry’s most influential players. Taking center stage this year will be our networking activities – which are aimed at bringing business partners together, new and old,” Felix Ng highlighted.

The ASEAN Gaming Summit will be held on March 21-23, 2022 in Manila.

Establishment of New Gambling Regulator in Singapore Faces Delays

The establishment of a new gambling regulator in Singapore has been delayed.

In July, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had said it wanted to launch a new gambling regulator, the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA), this year but Tan Tee How, Casino Regulatory Authority chairman says the schedule has been delayed.

He said the Covid-19 pandemic had made it difficult for the CRA officers to focus on creating the new regulator; a process that requires “intensive face-to-face discussions”. It is unknown if the new gambling regulator will finally be launched this year.

The proposed changes by the Ministry of Home Affairs included fines of up to $500,000 and seven years imprisonment for an operator of illegal gambling services.

Another amendment would allow physical social gambling among family and friends while online social gambling among families and friends would remain banned “due to the complexities of differentiation.”

The MHA also wants to introduce a prize cap of SGD100 (US$74) for mystery boxes, arcade games and claw machines arguing that this will be sufficient to address the inducement effect of high-value prizes, without increasing the regulatory burden on operators.

Singapore’s gambling regulation is currently supervised by various government agencies. Casino Regulatory Authority regulates the casinos, while MHA’s gaming regulatory agency regulates remote gambling services and fruit machines.
